Show your support with juice, water,
video cameras ... or just your presence

With the national media coming to St. Petersburg for the GOP debate, advocates for the homeless are holding four days of protest, including a "sleep-in" and hunger strike.

While organizers said they would act peacefully and within the law, the specter of a confrontation with police looms, recalling the incident in January when officers slashed the tents of homeless people. Advocates said that with a spotlight on St. Petersburg, they have the advantage. The city, they believe, can't risk another black eye.

The rally begins at 6 p.m. at the Mahaffey Theatre, 400 First Street South.
